Bench Theatre has been producing plays and the costumes for them for over 40 years. You can see from our production list the plays we have performed and may of them are period or costume dramas. We're also lucky enough to be blessed with some very talented costumiers who have some some beautiful creations over the years - and we still have many of them in our safe keeping.
Our rates for hire are extremely reasonable and a fraction of what it would cost you to have the costume made from scratch.
We charge £5 per costume for anything up to a 2-week hire. This should allow you to use the costume at your dress-rehearsal as well as your performances. We charge a £25 deposit when each costume is hired, which is refundable when the costume is returned - intact. We also ask that costumes are cleaned before they are returned, or the cost of dry-cleaning will be taken from the deposit.
